Meteor by Meowgli Meteor by Meowgli
The title's just for a bit of fun... I thought that cloud kinda looked like a giant meteor speeding towards the Royal & Ancient clubhouse!

Yesterday at sunset on the beach, West Sands, St Andrews - Scotland.

Full crop (i.e. no cropping)

Canon 40d, Sigma 10-20 @ 11mm f/7.1

* updated 22/3/10 - improved edit and sharpening

Thanks! In terms of the shot it's no different, all I did was some colour/contrast work really (although admittedly quite a bit on this one!) :)

Very nice look. Do you only use Photoshop or do you have any of the great plug-ins available out there?
Reply
:iconmeowgli:
Meowgli Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2010   Photographer
Just photoshop really... the only plugins I have for ps are Neat Image (noise reduction) and Photokit Sharpener (full sharpening workflow, which I only use for prints)... having said that I am always creating my own actions, and also use Tony Kuyper's luminosity/saturation masks - [link]

Awesome. Thanks for sharing that. I'm gonna read up on it. I ALWAYS LOVE learning new stuff/techniques. I get pretty neat results using Topaz plug ins. [link]
Your work is amazing and very inspiring. I'm only just getting started (in the photography aspect) and learning as I go. I checked out your web site. Nicely done. I'm also looking into an alternative outlet/option for prints, as I don't like the pricing structure on deviantART. Recommend anyone similar? Eventually I will get around to handling the business aspects myself, and cutting out the middle man, but right now, I just want to give people the option of buying stuff (and I don't wanna handle the paperwork). Any help is appreciated.
Sincerely,
Kenny

No probs. I've heard some people can do ok selling stuff on RedBubble and it looks like a pretty neat site but I've never used it myself. I think when you buy a premium prints account here you can set your own price and get a much larger percentage... but again it's not something I've used.

its a great photo in many ways adam but imo it is spoiled by overprocessing, there is just way too much saturation and contrast there that isnt necessary....but as said thats my opinion....

you know, the more I looked at this in comparison with other images in my gallery the more I realised you're totally right... I've toned it down a good deal now, look better to your eyes?
